Ưu: "Check in was efficient. I like that they have generous carry on policy. No checked bag fees. Boarding was quick and easy."
Ưu: "Vietnam airlines stands out in SE Asian carriers. Great service and planes leaving and arriving on time."
Khuyết điểm: "Keep up great service standards"
Ưu: "Crew were great. Seating was comfortable."
Khuyết điểm: "Boarding seems a bit of a crazy process."
Ưu: "The flight was quick, limited turbulence, and the crew was very friendly and pleasant to fly with. The only negative was the plane itself."
Khuyết điểm: "The plane smelt like fresh urine, chemicals, feces, and burning rubber. Simply put, the plane should not be in active rotation. It felt immensely unsafe as the plane rattled and moaned throughout the flight."
Ưu: "Crew was accommodating, seat space for economy was generous and comfortable for a 2hr flight."
Khuyết điểm: "Luggage allowance for economy is only one check-in bag, as opposed to most airlines these days, which give two check-in bags. For the price paid (almost $300) for a return trip to Yangon from HCMC, this is expensive -- and I booked over a month in advance. Should be offering more leverage."
Ưu: "Great service from start to finish"
Khuyết điểm: "Food"
Khuyết điểm: "Refurbishment of the seats"
Khuyết điểm: "Delayed with no announcements or explanation."
Khuyết điểm: "Nil"
Ưu: "Check in was efficient"
Ưu: "It went smoothly from start to finish"
Khuyết điểm: "Last minute wanted to check our luggage as the plane was boarding and almost caused us to miss our flight. Flight crew unhelpful and not friendly"
Ưu: "The guy who sat beside me was flying with a baby. The flight attendants were attentive to the needs of the baby, especially safety-wise."
Khuyết điểm: "Boarding is very unorganized, and takes so much time. They could probably improve by assigning certain rows to use the front/rear door of the aircraft. For example: rows 1-15 use the front door, and 16-30 use the rear door. That way there’re not too much congestion and waiting on the aisle."
Ưu: "From check in to final arrivals this was a smooth and faultless flight. Too short for food or entertainment but everything was perfect. All booked through Kayak."
Khuyết điểm: "Nothing!"
Ưu: "Flight was generally ok."
Khuyết điểm: "No power or USB ports."
Ưu: "Was able to buy last minute at airport. food and drinks are fine"
Khuyết điểm: "delayed by 40mins. but is ok as already informed from morning entertainment is overhead screen aircon not strong"
Ưu: "We really enjoy the additional room in Premium Economy. The boarding process and checki in was terrific."
Khuyết điểm: "Whilst the crew were pleasant today"
Ưu: "The food was good as there were selections of either Japanese food or Western food. In flight entertainment was good too with enough selections to choose from. Overalll, the service of crew was satisfying."
Khuyết điểm: "Flight was delayed a little during departure. Arrival to ho chi minh is not via aerobridge."
Ưu: "I arrived on time."
Khuyết điểm: "The food was horrid and the entertainment system was sub mediocre at st best."
Ưu: "Check in was easy, food was decent, there was a TV in each seat"
Ưu: "The Premium Economy section is relatively small, and quiet. At check-in, I was attributed a window seat, and the section was fully packed. The company went out of its way to give me an aisle seat. A window seat would have resulted in a badly hurting elbow. The seats in Economy Premium are OK, nice pitch and width : 2+4+2, instead of 3+3+3 in Economy."
Khuyết điểm: "The seats in Economy Premium have a foot-rest, that is badly designed and badly kept. Nothing to do with the kind they have in Business class. Push the button, it will spring up. This is OK for short people with short legs, like average Vietnamese customers. It is a pain for taller people with longer legs. It takes a lot of strength to push the footrest into its former position. In my seat, two attendants came to my help and could not do it. Something apparently was broken. I spent 13 miserable hours without being able to find a comfortable position for my legs. I strongly suggest to Vietnam Airlines get rid of the footrests altogether, or find an easy-to-manage model."
Ưu: "All good"
Khuyết điểm: "Nothing"
Ưu: "Was good - everything you would expect except the boarding times etc were odd. It asked you to be there at the gate an hour before departure but it only started boarding maybe 10 mins before and didn't give updates about departure delays."
Khuyết điểm: "No space in the Kayak booking to make meal requests like vegetarian, so ended up starving and without dinner until I got to the city 4 hours after boarding a late flight because VN Airlines didn't have any vegetarian meals on board. I couldn't even eat the salad as they put salmon on it. Cold bread roll and fruit... Kayak need to have at least the most common fields in the booking like vegetarian meal request."
Ưu: "late flight from sg,will usually depart on time"
Khuyết điểm: "they moved to changi terminal 4. Terminal 3 is much better because of train connectivity."
Khuyết điểm: "The flight was 3 hours late. My seat was wet when we boarded. I’m not sure it was really the crews fault, but still sucked and not a great experience."
Ưu: "Transit assitance was good, would have been even better if it was highlight after ticket purchase in electronic form"
Khuyết điểm: "Took too long (more than 1 hour in queue) to check in at Sydney"
Ưu: "I choose this flight because of late departure time"
Khuyết điểm: "no entertainment. no wifi."
Ưu: "There was a long line for the Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh flights but with multiple counters devoted to this route alone we were checking in not long after having been dropped off at the airport. We were offered seats on an earlier fight which we eagerly accepted. Knowing that this route is often cited as one of the busiest in the world it was no surprise to find ourselves on a wide-body jet, Airbus 330-200 even on this 2-hour flight. A small snack was served. The flight was uneventful."
Khuyết điểm: "Food... only could have the fruit"
Ưu: "Boarding on the 787 Dreamliner was ok French wine selection was good"
Khuyết điểm: "Food was average Limited entertainment movies etc Seat was uncomfortable and rocked either broken or poorly adjusted - thrilling on landing!! Staff did their minimum job and that's it no drinks during flight etc strange during a day flight they dimmed the windows to watch movie I hate the offset seating configuration I'm 184cm and it was difficult to stretch out."
Ưu: "Comfortable seats, but that was about it. Just ok."
Khuyết điểm: "This was only a short flight 1.5 hours, but only provided water, unlike Thai airways which provided a meal."
Ưu: "Unexpected charge of $450 to transfer planes in Vietnam. Worst purchase ever."
Ưu: "Bottled water and ample leg room pretty much sums up this short flight from Phu Quoc to SGN."
Khuyết điểm: "Crew at check-in counter was not friendly or helpful. Even though our pregnancy was documented a week earlier by Vietnam Airlines, she made us go through the same process, though we showed her we had the same form already in our possession."
Ưu: "The leg room is one of the best in economy class. At six feet tall, I was able to stretch my legs and not have my knees against the seat in front of us. The personal entertainment console worked perfectly with clear picture and sound, though the free headphones were uncomfortable. Boarding crew allowed us to cut in line since we had a 2 year old. Very appreciative for that, and appreciative for their sternness with those customers who were trying to slip in in front of us."
Khuyết điểm: "Crew on board came across as a little unfriendly, though professional seriousness might have been mistaken as annoyance. The food was passable, but definitely not quality. Sufficient amount of beverage was served."
Ưu: "Was able to change seat to exit row; not crowded; A350 is a really nice plane. Vietnam Airlines has amazingly friendly and helpful crew, extremely pleasant. Catering from Japan is edible. Delta Platinum gives you lounge access in Osaka and HCMC."
Khuyết điểm: "A/V system was on the fritz for the whole plane; was not activated until 45 minutes into the flight and then kept cutting out for all passengers. I just gave up and slept."
Ưu: "Food: good recipes, shoved out hot"
Khuyết điểm: "Ticketing desk chaotic with apathetic staff; no sense of first-come-first-serve; you have to be firm about people cutting in front of you and be sharp when they open or close the stations. On the plane, crew performs responsibility checklist, not a smidgeon more; no sense of hospitality or gratiousness; cattle car mentality. Blanket received not in a wrapper and smelled of another person. Plane from Singapore late. Bus transit instead of jetway. Bus late; long time standing on plane waiting to exit."
Ưu: "Early check in was not a problem and baggage check in weight is great and not paying for it."
Khuyết điểm: "This flight seems more and more every time we take an econo flight which, should be cheaper then what you get for pricing. No fluff flight only I can see the different is the baggage weight you can take is only the extra. Seem we stayed on the tar mac for a while flying out and flying in Ho Chi which, the air movement in the cabin was not that great at all and little stuffy and warm. One thing leaving out of Term 3 at Singapore if you go thru Immegration and want to eat the food is not great all and stay away from Burger King and for the 3rd time got sick again! Worst Burger Jiont in the World ever! From no soda, the chicken nuggets tasting like fish, and the Burgees did not taste like burger very sickening! Thier are a rip-off to still wanted everyone to pay full price for the a meal and without no drink and pay extra for water and wanted people to pay for ice. Burger King Co. really need to take hard look at this Joint for very bad foods serving people and getting them sick and ripping people off with money. Seats are small and compact and the seat belt for the airline is small for a bigger person and not meaning over weight."
Ưu: "The crew was nice, boarding was easy"
Khuyết điểm: "No entertainment and the business class seat doesn't lay flat all the way."
Ưu: "Overall my experience was good. Pros: seat are comfortable. The jet seemed more spacious than ANA airlines. Cons: workers know little English compared to ANA from checking in to the flight attendants. I think this was the most disappointing because the language barrier was frustrating when needing help going the right direction and having questions about checking in. The food was OK. The fruit tasted rotten and the food didn't seem as fresh either. The customer service was also mediocre. When I was on ANA airlines all the staff were very helpful and they seemed statisfied with their jobs. When I travel to ASIA again I will try and avoid Vietnam airlines."
Khuyết điểm: "See above"
Khuyết điểm: "Oh Food. Again food. I have been being served the same food for more than 10 years. bread and cold meat...!!!"
Ưu: "Crew on board was responsive and really helpful with regard of needs of passengers. Food tastes really good. Decent amount of leg room, considering it's economy class."
Khuyết điểm: "We had a flight at 11am in korea with vietnam airlines heading back to Singapore. We had to queue an hour and a half for our boarding pass and check in, which makes it unbelievable how is that possible. We were there early since 815am, and only got our boarding around 10am. We nearly missed our flight as there were queue all around for security check. I guess this is the first and the last time i will travel with Vietnam Airlines."
Ưu: "Small plane and very nice people. Short flight so no food or entertainment to judge. Just hard not to love the Cambodians."
Ưu: "The flight had many open seats, the crew helped to board passengers efficiently, the food was plentiful and they even offered wine on a 3 hour flight. It was delightful."
Khuyết điểm: "There weren't individual entertainment systems."
Khuyết điểm: "We booked the flight for family of 8 Despite informing them over counter in Narita international airport that to place us at 2 together in the same because we have kid of 8 years and 12 years , we were all allocated separately. We could not do online check in even we log in 24 hours before flight ,all seats shown available is individual. Being in the airport early does not help too. I will definitely not consider taking Vietnam airlines in future n will cautious friends to be aware of such service."
Ưu: "Flight left exactly on time and arrived 10 minutes early."
Khuyết điểm: "Leg room very poor on this flight. Very short flight so no food or entertainment."
Ưu: "The Air France business lounge that Vietnam Airlines use in CDG Airport was excellent. Lots of space a good selection of food. The airline staff where all wonderful and food on the plane was delicious. I like the sleeping pods. Very private and comfortable."
Khuyết điểm: "I would like a few more recent English movie choices."
Ưu: "Very attentive to handicapped passengers. Which is me. Yhe flight is short yet they served a light lunch we seemed like a waste to. I had a coke. The plane was clean I love the hostess uniforms. Beautiful and very feminine. Refreshing in today's world"
Khuyết điểm: "For a short hop I have nothing to suggest. Perfect"
Ưu: "No baggage charge, good comfortable plane."
Khuyết điểm: "It wasn't possible to check baggage through to Yangon despite it being advertised as a connecting flight. Very annoying to have to collect and re check in at HCMC airport while in transit."
Ưu: "friendly air crew"
Khuyết điểm: "limited film and entertainment"
Khuyết điểm: "We left 1. 5 hours late! The only food on the plane was prepackaged chemical foods and the only vegan option was a porridge they pour water over ($2)."
Khuyết điểm: "Avoid at all costs. Delayed both ways. On the way out of Danang they would not even tell us what time the flight would be departing despite numerous passengers asking. On the flight, a crew member stepped on my foot with her heel. My foot was NOT in the aisle, she has stepped in to get past a colleague. She didn’t even stop to apologize. Her colleague apologized and said I’ll get you a glass of water. She returned after a good 30 minutes with a paper cup of water. There was no enquiring how I was or if I needed anything. Will NEVER fly them again!"
Ưu: "Crew was average, need to brush up on geography. One crew member announced that we have arrived to the city of Quang Nam, instead of province of Quang Nam."
Khuyết điểm: "Take off on time, not 45 minutes late."
Ưu: "Clean plane"
Khuyết điểm: "Late"
Ưu: "The food is good. Air crew is nice."
Khuyết điểm: "Worth for money we paid"
Ưu: "Vietjet’s staff are always attractive, smiling, and friendly. I like the double embarking and disembarking process."
Khuyết điểm: "I hate Vietjet’s restrictive luggage policies. I had to repack everything at the ticket counter to match the 7 kilo restriction and one carryon limit. On every other airline the way I pack is acceptable. Then I was given a window seat with no window. It was in the exit row. Terrible!"
Khuyết điểm: "Boarding on time instead of delay twice"
Khuyết điểm: "should be on time"
Khuyết điểm: "I was charged for a medical device (CPAP) to carry it onboard the plane. Never had to pay before on any flight as FAA permits medical devices for free."
Ưu: "The crew was very nice and helpful, comfortable seats and the airline seemed well run for a discount carrier."
Khuyết điểm: "Getting to and from the plane, they use a bus and only had one bus so we was packed in like cattle on a truck"
Khuyết điểm: "Airport reception is inexperience, could provide us the info we need. Luggage charging 2 for 70kg which is retarded. If you pay online or declare online it gives you discount, unfortunately that doesn’t work on visitors. The check innprocuedure was ineffective and waste lots of time"
Ưu: "Fast and efficient and low cost budget"
Khuyết điểm: "Customer service. Not helpful at all. They were more interested in getting rid of us. There was a man in a wheelchair who injured his leg in a bike accident. He needed to get to Vietnam for medical help. They told him they couldn’t accommodate him. They also refused to give helpful. They just left him. Your airline is run by heartless people. I would never recommend Viet jet to my worst enemy"
Khuyết điểm: "No free water on a 5 hour flight. Poor choice of snacks to purchase. No leg room. Chaotic at boarding time. Expensive for the service"
Ưu: "It was on time for a change"
Khuyết điểm: "The seats are uncomfortable. We requested 2 aisle seats. Given the ok, and then found out we were seated window and middle. How did that get lost in translation?"
Ưu: "Flight Cree good"
Khuyết điểm: "Seats, no jet ways to board or deplane"
Khuyết điểm: "Crew members playing video games while waiting on the Tarmac.. very unprofessional.. driver of shuttle should be fired for not paying attention..."
Ưu: "Plane was clean and boarding was efficient. Good value. Flight was on time."
Khuyết điểm: "Online booking experience was confusing as I was rerouted to Kiwi. Tried to pay for both bags at time of booking but was told due to a technical issue I had to pay at the airport. When checking in was forced to pay in cash. More of an inconvenience and caught us off guard. Plane was old and seats were very small and uncomfortable."
Khuyết điểm: "No online check-in. Flight was late. No legroom."
Khuyết điểm: "Flight was delayed an hour and a half without any information as to why. Major grievance was baggage policy. My wife and I have been traveling Asia for the last 7+ month and taken 35 flights to 10 different countries. This is the ONLY time we were told we needed to check our bags (which are both soft-sided and weight ~7kg). Apparently our small backpacks also counted toward the carry-on limit, which would have been fine if not for the following two contradictions: this was our THIRD flight with VietJet Air (one from Siem Reap to Hanoi, Hanoi to Da Nang, Da Nang to Ho Chi Minh) and we didn't have to check baggage the first two. We also saw at least half a dozen people get on our flight with either bags larger than ours, or carrying three pieces of luggage. Either enforce all the rules for everyone, every time they fly the airline, or not at all."
Ưu: "Good pilot and crew, comfortable seats because we were given the ones right behind the exit row seats with some leg room."
Khuyết điểm: "Our original flight time was delayed the first time, and then it got delayed AGAIN about 45 minutes after we got to the airport!"
Khuyết điểm: "Confort"
Khuyết điểm: "Took 2 flights with this airline and both flights were delayed! Will never fly with this airline again!!!"
Ưu: "Uneventful flight. Nothing worth writing home about. No food, no entertainment, no hassle either."
Khuyết điểm: "VietJet Air has the habit of not announcing delays until after departure time. It was funny to see the billboards announcing: "On time", then "Boarding" when there was no aircraft in sight. On the Arrivals billboard, it showed the in-coming flight as "Landed", when it most obviously had not landed, and there was no information about when it might eventually arrive. With slow operations, we boarded 40 minutes mate and arrived a full hour late. The schedule had been 9:00 PM; days before flying it was pushed back to 10:00 PM. We actually were at the gate at 11:00 PM. VietJet Air is unfortunately the only airline operating a late flight from Pleiku to Ho Chi Minh. No competition means no pressure to be on time."
Ưu: "Flights were on time and worked well for us. Flight attendants were helpful"
Khuyết điểm: "The charges for each checked bag were annoying. We are a family of three and traveling with a 26 Kg kid but paying full price for our seats. With one checked bag the additional 4 Kg in the bag resulting in an upcharge seems foolish. Other passengers weighing 4 times as much pay the same ticket price as our smaller lighter weigh child."
Ưu: "I waited 30 minutes in one line just to ask a question about luggage weight. A staff member told me to switch to another line next to me. I asked her three times if she was sure I should change lines. She insisted I move, only to wait in another line for 20 more minutes! There WAS NO ONE WORKING AT THE COUNTER! I found her again and she told me to switch. To another long line next to me and I had enough. I had to yell at her and make it clear that I was not going to wait another minute. I said I am going to the front and I’ll be next. I asked my ONE question about weight. It took 15 seconds and she should have handled it for me from the start."
Khuyết điểm: "Staff that doesn’t listen and just points to a line when she demonstrated that she speaks some English. Don’t treat foreigners like idiots. They are generally very smart and have a valid question. Learn to LISTEN to your customers. A customer complaint is a gift. It’s up to you what you do with it."
Ưu: "Provide 30kg of luggage allowance and at least a clear method for prepurchasing luggage allowance in your website"
Khuyết điểm: "No guide telling where to find Vietjet ticket counter for check in. I missed my flight and slept on the floor. No follow up and I had to book with Vietnam Airlines with no refund or voucher. I'll only fly Vietnam Airlines in the future."
Ưu: "Cheap flights but u get what u pay for"
Khuyết điểm: "2 delays of 10hrs"
Khuyết điểm: "Attendants gave the first three rows drinks, but didn't give the rest of the passengers anything."
Khuyết điểm: "This airline was impossible to get in touch with. THey we're not at all accommodating to my request to change the flight time and sleazily rip you off with what is written in the small print."
Ưu: "Good value, and the planes were on time (We took a couple of VietJet flights). Staff was courteous and friendly.Inexpensive! Free bag."
Khuyết điểm: "Somewhat arbitrary rules about how much your carry on can weigh. I don't really get why this makes much of a difference anyway, as the bag will be on the plane anyway."
Khuyết điểm: "I am an average height United States male; never have I been so restricted by seat space."
Ưu: "Airlineseriously delayed… Triples an hour duration flight… Delayed 2 1/2 hours seriously delayed… Triples an hour duration flight… Delayed 2 1/2 hours"
Khuyết điểm: "Caroline is wonderful once the plane is able to get into the air"
Khuyết điểm: "many delays, no associates anywhere in the terminal to address any issues even though they say repeatedly to see an agent if you have questions, horrible airline that does not deliver the service that is paid for"
Khuyết điểm: "I was on an International flights, 3.5 hours. Their website didn't mention any additional fees for check-in luggage, I didn't expect that as most airlines don't charge extra fees on international routes, how surprised was I when at the check-in counter I was ask to pay $36 for my 10kg backpack. I feel I was scammed."
Ưu: "Not much"
Khuyết điểm: "Bus instead of ramp boarding. No food or drinks provided. The carts raced by us and did not stop to ask if we wanted a purchase. No leg room in seats."
Khuyết điểm: "Have an error in system. I can't join the flight"
Ưu: "Reservations were relatively easy to make on line and relatively easy to purchase on-line."
Khuyết điểm: "Purchasing tickets this way can result in a lot of confusion upon arriving at the Airport. Without any documents that the Check-in Counter can use to process Check-in, the traveller will find out that a visit is required to a separate desk to obtain your reservation number scribbled on a scrap of paper to take back to the Check-in Counter (after waiting on line there again) so that the agent can find your record and proceed with check-in. This two step process is confusing and not immediately obvious to even the seasoned International traveller. Good thing I'm not easily flustered!"
Khuyết điểm: "There is no entertainment in flight and baggage check in is an issue ."
Ưu: "Cheap fares"
Khuyết điểm: "Late. Terrible boarding process, agents showed up 15 minutes prior to scheduled departure time, and then put a final boarding call on the message board everyone had a lineup in a long line and no rows called just first come first serve. Male flight attendants were rude."
Ưu: "Check in and boarding processes were actually ok this time! Decent timeliness and decent comfort level on flight."
Khuyết điểm: "I understand that a budget flight will sell food and drink for money, but I feel it would be common courtesy if they at least provided water free of charge if a client asked."
Ưu: "Fluent English, comfortable and ample seat space"
Khuyết điểm: "2 things: 1) I've traveled dozens of airlines with the same carryon backpack. The ticket agent required me to weigh my bag and since it was greater than 7kg said I'd have to check it. 2) Flight crew was running late which is entirely understandable. BUT rather than let the 200+ passengers know what was happening the gate agents said nothing."
Ưu: "Please be aware they can change flight times earlier without communicating"
Khuyết điểm: "#Delayed for about three-quarters of an hour. #Cramped seating. #Coffee unpleasant. #Male crew abrupt."
Khuyết điểm: "It was delayed over 1 hour. it was many times since i've used."
Ưu: "Everything was good"
Khuyết điểm: "Just 20 minutes late"
